Many people reported that they could not get into the game, and they are not beta testers for the HTML5 version. I am at my wit's end as to why. If you don't mind streaming, please try another browser.

I know you must be pulling your hair out but as of now:

Cannot access AH
Cannot gift
Cannot trade
Two Player Actions do not work
Sometimes when I open up Edit Avatar to do something, when I click 'Done' it doesn't work. Eventually the screen goes dark and I refresh the game.
*Cannot decorate room or leave 'decorate room' once accessed.

As far as lag....when I first get to a place, it takes a little bit more time but I haven't really experienced lag like it is on the old site.

Take care vikings, I know it is a pain in the ass. :heart:


These seem to be the problems the HTML5 testers are having :sad:

Hey, I am a 2012 player and cannot play this game at all anymore because of this update. I have a Chrome computer and am sad that it has to be this way. Please try and make the update available with all devices. Thanks,

Very frustrating but sure it will be great when all the bugs are worked out.

Not all of my arrows are working. Both in rooms and the ones I purchased in store.
AH show hours left for something but not the minutes.
When I click to decorate room store or inventory doesn't show. Then I have to refresh to get out of decorating mode.
The only tab at the top that I can access is the community tab
Can't click on friends to visit back who have visited me.
Can't decorate at all.

Is there any way to OPT out of testing the HTML5? I can't do pretty much anything. I can't trade or gift. I freeze constantly. My friends either show up invisible, naked, or missing hair. My chat messes up sometimes. It's to the point where I just wish I never volunteered to test this. I know it's being tested to work out all the kinks, but I can't even play. :'(

Hi BVG
I got a new computer since I was only playing via my phone until the change. At first, things went smoothly, in game, access to game etc. But lately, it's been difficult to place objects without having duplicate imagery, and takes forever to load. It seems, at least on my end, that things are getting worse than better. Today for instance, It was difficult getting into the gave via the game link, and Google Both took forever then ran slowly. I thought it was my computer, but everything else worked fast and without troubles.
Just thought you should know.
Be kind.

For HTML5 you don't need to download anything.

If you use a computer or a laptop, and want to use the YoWorld desktop app, you can download it from the "Download" tab on the top part of the game.

Otherwise, you will be fine using a browser which works (Google Chrome, Firefox, Vivaldi, Microsoft Edge browsers)

Viking Andrew wrote:Hey YoFans,

I'm sure many of you remember that we did some testing for YoWorld Streaming last week. After successfully testing it with everyone, we are now ready to roll it out fully!

YoWorld Streaming will be going live TODAY at 20:00 UTC(Game Time), 3:00 PM ET, 12:00 PM PT.

Want more info? Check out below:

What is YoWorld Streaming?

  • This feature allows you to stream YoWorld live from our servers. This is similar to something like Netflix where you don't actually download the movie you're watching, but instead, are streaming it from Netflix's servers.

What will this change?

  • You will notice a different screen when YoWorld is loading. Some players may experience the loading period taking anywhere from 30-60 seconds longer than normal. You may also experience some performance and quality issues. There also might be a bit of lag between your input and what is reflected in-game.

    • If you click "Download YoWorld" on the screen below, you will get the YoWorld Desktop App. If you click "continue streaming on flash player free version of YoWorld" you will be taken to YoWorld Streaming
      Image
Who will be using YoWorld Streaming?

  • All YoFans playing through Firefox and Chrome will automatically be using YoWorld Streaming.

What if I don’t use those browsers?

  • You can download the YoWorld Desktop App and play normally through that. Or you can download the browsers from the links below. Otherwise, the game will be inaccessible until HTML5 is released.

When will HTML5 be launching?

  • Currently, we are working with a date of mid-January. But that is tentative and may change.

I’m already on the Desktop App, so what does that mean for me?

  • You can continue to play and enjoy YoWorld the same as you have been without any interruption at all!


Helpful Links:




Having trouble? Here’s some helpful tips!


Very Slow Loading?

    Try refreshing the webpage. If that doesn’t help, download the Desktop App from the links above.

Poor image quality?

    This is expected for some players. There is no way to fix this other than getting the Desktop App.

Other issues?

    Please report them in this thread for us to investigate!







EDIT:

Update: There is an issue with the game going to a whitescreen periodically for some players. This is being investigated.

I AM SO loving using chrome for playing on Yoworld

I have iPad and no, we cannot play YoWorld using an iPad or a cell phone. The link won't show up. Flash browsers like Puffin and Photon won't work anymore. Are you a HTML5 tester? Then I don't know as I am not a tester.

The desktop app is not temporary. What's temporary is the streaming.
